Meet My Ancestors - by Brad

Well, I was playing around on Wikipedia today and I found some interesting stuff about my great-great-great-great grandfather. I have heard little things here and there about him, but it was interesting to see it in context. Again I use the term "interesting" because his character may not be one that I will try to imitate.

I am glad that I didn't get his looks (if I did, just let me think that I didn't). However, Wesley may have been blessed with the same scowl.

The inscription says, "He fought for the white people." Is that really a good thing for an indian chief?

Forget Spencer...you should go with Patkanim for the new baby's name.

Ironic that Elliott Bay was in the treaty....
